The Leica R 100mm macro is regarded as the KING of all macro lenses. With the recent interest generated from the CV125, one may wanna consider the Leica instead since the price is almost the same. The CV hovers around $1000 - $1200 while the Leica can bought for around $1200.
Both are cheaper than the ZF 100 brand new ($1500) or used.
Yes, at $1,550.00 in the US the ZF is indeed more expensive than both the CV 125 and a used Leica 100 but the price is for a brand new ZF with warranty (not that something major could happen to a MF lens but just in case). The CV has been discontinued and hard to find, the Leica is still available brand new for over $4,000.00. Plus, at f/2.0 the ZF is faster than both.
Great images from both you and phuang3, BTW!
